Super-Bowl Winning Quarterback & Five-Time NFL MVP


Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has proven that he’s a winner both on and off the football field. Peyton is now the NFL’s all-time leader in career touchdown passes, with 510 total touchdown passes.

Peyton has earned his place among the NFL’s greatest quarterbacks. He is the only player in NFL history to be named MVP five times, has been selected to 13 pro-bowls, and was named to the Associated Press’ NFL All-Pro Team five times. In 2013, he was named Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated.

Off  the field, Peyton has established The PeyBack Foundation which funds various youth-based organizations in Indiana, Louisiana, Tennessee and Colorado.  In recognition of his outstanding charitable contributions, Manning has received numerous awards including the Henry P. Iba Citizen Athlete Award, USA Weekend’s Most Caring Athlete Award, and the Bryon “Whizzer” White Humanitarian Award.

Peyton is one of today’s most sought after speakers, and never fails to deliver an inspirational message to audiences both large and small.

Bobby Bowden’s “The Wisdom of Faith” Now On Shelves

Bobby Bowden

  Legendary College Football Coach


In The Wisdom of Faith, released yesterday, legendary college football coach Bobby Bowden looks back over 80 years to explain how faith and happiness are inseparable. Known as much for his affable charm as he is for his championship teams, Bowden guided Florida State University to more than three hundred victories and two national championships. As the winningest coach in Division 1 football history, statues have been built in his honor and national charities and awards have been named after him.

Now in what he calls the “fourth quarter” of his life, Bowden shares with readers, no matter their life circumstance, the importance of a life rooted in faith – from the perspective of a man who has made the journey. The Wisdom of Faith covers topics such as fear, trust, courage, responsibility, humility, patience, discipline, contentment, suffering and love.

 A popular speaker for both faith-based and non-faith based events alike, Bowden inspires, motivates, and engages audiences around the country with speech topics including:

- Success
– Leadership
– Teamwork
– Faith

Mack Brown

College Football Analyst &

Legendary NCAA Coach


Mack Brown, coaching legend and college football analyst for ESPN and ABC, stepped down from his position as head coach of the Texas Longhorns in 2013 after 16 winning seasons, including the 2005 BCS National Championship.

Excellence and consistency are nothing new to the coaching veteran of 41 years, including 29 years as a head coach. Establishing stability is a trademark of Brown’s career, highlighted by his success at the University of North Carolina and the University of Texas.

With all of the success on the field, the primary emphasis remained the same with Brown’s squads — maintaining a high level of achievement in the classroom and in the community. 80% of his players at North Carolina received their degrees and a third of his players at Texas earned 3.0 grade point averages.

Speech topics include:

- Excellence

- Consistency

- Leadership

Please contact IMG Speakers for more information about booking Mack Brown for your next event.

What a year it has been in sports. Here at IMG we are proud of all of our athletes, broadcasters and overall talent that we represent. Tonight is the night where all fans get to vote on their favorite player, play, male or female, team or individual for the honor of an ESPY award. To say the least, IMG is far from short from having their talent being represented later tonight.

Players such as Peyton Manning, Henrik Lundqvist, Maria Sharapova, Li Na and Novak Djokovic are representing their sport and IMG at the highest level.  The title, “Best Player,” in their respective sport, is obviously such an honor, but these five individuals are all on the same team: IMG. All of their hard work, commitment and dedication to the game is what has driven them to become the best at what they do, and IMG is honored to put their name behind these extraordinary athletes.

The list of talent that will be represented tonight does not stop at the players performing at the highest level. IMG’s talent is on full display even when one of our own is not up for an award. Tonight, the ESPY nominated play of the year, Damian Lillard’s buzzer beater, was called by IMG’s Mike Tirico. One of the best endings to an NBA playoff series and Mike delivered it to perfection. “OH MY GOD, GOOD!!!”  This will always be remembered by NBA fans, as true passion and love for the game breaks through as Mike stays focused on the job at hand.

We would like to congratulate all of our clients that have been nominated for ESPY awards, they are well deserved.


IMG Speakers’ ESPY Nominations:

Best Male Athlete: Peyton Manning

Best Game: New York Rangers (Henrik Lundqvist) vs. Los Angeles Kings Game 5

Best NFL Player: Peyton Manning

Best NHL Player: Henrik Lundqvist
